Colombian “Nuns” Arrested For Drug Trafficking


Three women have been arrested in Colombia after trying to smuggle drugs through Gustavo Rojas Pinilla International Airport in San Andres after arriving from Bogota.

However, what makes this incident unique is the fact that all three women were dressed as nuns.

They believed the costumes would spare them from being examined. However the police have stated that the women’s nervous behavior and cheap fabric gave them away.

The “nuns”, aged 20, 32 and 37, had two kilos of cocaine was strapped to the legs of each woman. All three broke down into tears and launched into tales of economic poverty as soon as they were caught.

San Andres is just off Nicaragua’s coast and is a longtime smuggling course for cocaine from mainland Colombia.
